Society didn't listen to the warning, and the suffering was legendary.
over the past years or so i've seen 'no evil', 'no nazi', 'no military' or 'no commercial' use software licenses, whatever- software licenses that include clauses that aren't directly about the source code or authorship itself
as far as i can tell this is just to make the author feel empowered about stuff without actually making a real change in the world
As for the rest, I liked how they gave the feeling you were walking through a spook alley, and the interviews gave good back story. I think it was worth watching.
So I decided to watch Hell House LLC 2. I liked the middle part but thought the ending was bad.
I'm not sure how to explain w/o spoilers, but the best way to describe it: You know how some movies hide the monster in the shadows, and when they finally show it, it is some fake stupid looking mannequin which says "rawr"
They didn't exactly do that, but it is the way it made me feel.

Okay I am confused.
I have a program that is taking 16 images from each of the capture APIs to see how long they take and which ones work.
The only ones that work are ANY (which just seems to be GSTREAMER), GSTREAMER, V4L, V4L2 (which is just V4L) and VFW (which also appears to just be V4L).
GSTREAMER produces images that are 2304x1536 and V4L produces 640x480 images.
I am using a C922X which is supposed to be 1920x1080, why does GSTREAMER creates such large images?
